That would be Hawkesbury CRESCENT. Gees, is it that hard to get it right?

There occasionally seems to be a conspiracy to change crescents to streets. I remember around ten years ago a new sign was put up at the end of our street saying ST instead of CR or CRES. That was then picked up by Telstra which put that in our phone book listing. A few months later I was about to complain to Planning when the sign was changed. I phoned Telstra and had the phone book listing corrected and we had our proper address back.

Ok, fair enough. I don’t mean to split hairs, but isn’t it strange to call a laptop an appliance.

Well its got me buggered what type of ‘battery powered appliance’ could start a fire.

Google “lithium battery fire.” And then remember that virtually all laptops use them…
